This paper examines the contribution of small business incubators to the development and promotion of small medium and micro enterprises. The International Labour Organization argues that small business incubators are innovative instruments that are increasingly considered to be of prime importance in developing and promoting competitive small firms. The location of technology stations at universities of technology points to the importance of these universities in the development of technology-intensive small firms.
